5 Books to Read This Spring
Spring has finally sprung! Sort of. The weather here is still thinking about playing nice. We have certainly been seeing the April showers. I'm thinking about what to do for my flower garden this year since I still haven't really done anything with the gardens we have. Part of what we've been thinking about is doing a deck or patio in the front. And all I'm thinking about is the comfy lawn furniture, and me sitting there enjoying wonderful weather, and a good book. Here are five books I think fit with Spring.

January 2023 Wrap Up
In terms of reading owned books I hadn't read yet, I only completed two books. I owned Dragons and Demons, and Vlog Like a Boss. I read No Plot No Problem from Scribd. For total books, I'm only counting three since four were re-reads. So I am currently at 3 books of the 65 book goal for the year. Did you read any good books this past month?

2022 was not a great year of reading for me. It is probably the worst since I started tracking my reading. I only recorded around 30 books and some of these were DNFs. But of those 30 I found many new favorites. Here are a few of those favorites, and some of the not so favorites I came across.
Review: The Choice by Nora Roberts
The Choice by Nora Roberts is the third and final book of The Dragon Heart Legacy. I loved the build-up to the final battle but then felt a little let down that Odran didn’t put up more of a fight.
2023 Reading Goals
Happy New Year! Let's hope we break the curse of the 2020s this year. Not just the pandemic, but I've been struggling with my reading. Last year I think was the worst, although that's hard to say because I didn't track 2020 or much of 2021. I also struggled even in my tracking because many of the books I borrowed from my library or Scribd did not get added to my tracking spreadsheet. I hope to have a post somewhat soon, as in sometime this month, about reading apps. For reasons I'll get into in that post, I feel this may help with my excuses for forgetting to add, or just not adding books to my tracking.
